Does an expert need a teacher's license?

Yes. They'll bring more expertise, experience with real-world applications, and fresh ideas into the classroom. [105 votes] (60%)
 
No. First and foremost, a teacher needs training in managing a classroom, connecting with students and creating an atmosphere conducive to learning. [70 votes] (40%)
